Interview With The Legendary Bassist - Victor Wooten

Published July 21, 2017 in Interviews

I'm on holiday with the family right now (and LOVING it!), but, I really didn't want to skip a week and not send you anything... so, I thought I'd treat you to something I usually keep only for members of the membership here at SBL.

And, if you're already a member at SBL I'm sure it's been a while since you watched this, so you're going to love it too...

Just over a year ago, Victor Wooten swung by SBL Towers... and obviously we grabbed a camera and filmed an entire interview with him whilst he was here!

As you'd expect, he dropped some serious knowledge bombs such as;

  • How he picked up the bass aged two and was playing live at the ripe old age of six!
  • How he was tutored by his four brothers, particularly his guitar-playing brother Regi.
  • How he learned to tap by listening to Stanley Jordan.
  • About his collaboration with Stanley Clarke and Marcus Miller under the moniker of SMV
  • And much, much more…

As always, see you in the shed...
